Midland under 17 Championships, 13 August

Alex Griffiths secured gold in the under 17 men’s hammer at the Midland Championship in Nuneaton with a throw of 58.10m. He was eight metres ahead of the silver placed athlete and just short of his personal best of 58.50m which he achieved at the recent Youth Development League fixture In Newport. Griffiths has also been selected to represent the Midlands team in the UK School Games in Loughborough in September.
